Dear Mr. Cornwell: I just finished reading "Agincourt". The people are so real to me. The atrocities makes me cringe. The sights and sounds of the woods brings me there. I hope "Agincourt" would be made into a major movie - maybe directed by Ridley Scott. I am not sure who would be the perfect Nick Hook. I thought Laurence Fox could be perfect as King Henry V, Saoirse Ronan could be a Milicente who is both brave and vulnerable, and Russell Crowe could make an excellent Sir John. Best wishes to you and your writing, Jenny Healey Hamilton, New Jersey, USA

Q

Hello Mr. Cornwell.  I have enjoyed the Sharpe books as well as some of the others.  You are very informed on your history and the up dates on how the cities or places look today is very interesting.  Thank you for writing great subjects.  Keep up the good work.  Many of us will enjoy your books.  Richard.


Q

JUST READ DEATH OF KINGS AND WANTED TO COMMENT ON THE LAUDATORY COMMENTS ON THE BACK OF THE JACKET - I HAVE ONE COMPLAINT ABOUT THIS BOOK AND ALL THE OTHERS FOR THAT MATTER - THEY ARE ABOUT 1000 PAGES TOO SHORT. WRITE FASTER AND LONGER. REGARDS, JIM


Q

I just want to say that I enjoy reading your books. My favourite being the Saxon series. So much that I have joined The Vikings reenactment group. Not bad as a warband member of 63yrs. If you are in the UK in August there is a large muster on Lindisfarne

Thanks!  I won't be in the UK in August as I will be mostly on stage at the Monomoy Theatre, but have fun!


Q

Mr. Cornwell - I just finished the Sharpe series, less than an hour ago. With limited reading time the process took nearly a year! I greatly enjoyed the series and now I find myself feeling somewhat bitter-sweet...like an old friend has moved away. I read the Grail Quest and Arthur books before Sharpe. I look forward to reading the others series' as well. All the best to you. James Hopkins St. Charles, MO


Q

I cannot imagine the volume of contacts that you receive. Your books do more than entertain me when I read them. They lead me to look deeper into the events before, during, and after your tales. I have learned so much by using your novels as a springboard to explore history. It is usually the case where fact, when known is usually stranger that fiction. I am sure you cannot write fast enough to tell the tales of Britian. One period stands out to me as having been ignored. That is the time where the Danes actually did rule England under Cnut the Great. I would be very interested to hear your view and the possibility a book covering the Danish rule of England prior to the Norman conquest. Thanks and I wish you a long and happy life, keep writing.  Jeff Stephens

It is a fascinating period - so yes, maybe? One day? Right now I have no plans, but I grew up very near one of Cnut's battle sites so I've long been interested in him. So yes, perhaps?


Q

Dear Mr Cornwell, I want to say nothing more than your books are wonderful. I recently picked up The Last Kingdom following a glowing review from a friend and I was blown away. I'm currently storming through the Pale Horseman. In short thank you for painting such a wonderful mirror of the past for one to walk through, Yours, Tom Lewis


Q

On my 4th read through of Sharpe. Just a great read!

Hi Bernard - am a great fan and enjoy your books. I just wanted to suggest a possible subject for you to consider writing about, i.e. the Battle of Brunanburh (937). Very important battle between the Anglo Saxons and the combined armies from Scotland, Vikings, Ireland and Scrathclyde. Just a thought - I would love to see what you would do with it. Keep the good work coming - I look forward to your work and reread Saxon before the next book comes out. I'm 68 so please get it done before I pass on! LOL Thanks!
